Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disorder affecting many joints, including those in the hands and feet. The current treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis is to target localized inflammation. This is to target the effects of the disease rather than the underlying cause of it.
